FORVIA, the world’s 7th largest automotive technology company combining Faurecia and HELLA, announces today that its joint CO2 neutrality roadmap was validated by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) on June 6, 2022. Together, Faurecia and HELLA will reach net zero emissions by 2045 – an objective corresponding to the most ambitious standard of SBTi. Only twenty companies worldwide have had their net zero commitments approved so far.

The targets cover:

  • Overall net-zero target: FORVIA commits to reach net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the value chain by 2045, from a 2019 base year.
  • Near-term targets: FORVIA commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 80% by 2025, from a 2019 base year. FORVIA also commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions 45% by 2030, from a 2019 base year.
  • Long-term targets: FORVIA commits to reduce absolute scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions 90% by 2045, from a 2019 base year.

This third target represents a 90% reduction in the emissions of Faurecia and HELLA production plants and products for their full lifecycle, “from cradle to grave”. The last 10% will be offset by removals, meaning CO2 from the atmosphere will be sequestrated in sustainable materials like plastics. FORVIA launched its Sustainable Materials division a year ago for this purpose.

The SBTi’s approval is highly encouraging and recognizes our efficiency in leading the urgent transformation of our industry. Faurecia is already acting on many fronts to combine business growth and environmental protection. For the planet, we are continuously rethinking our products (materials, architectures) and the way we produce them: using less, just necessary and, decarbonated energy in our industrial facilities. We now share an ambitious 2045 net-zero target with HELLA – confirming FORVIA’s leadership in our sector.

As released in October 2021, the SBTi Net-Zero Standard provides a common, science-based understanding of net-zero, requiring deep and complete decarbonization, applying to all sectors, anywhere in the world. It offers companies a robust certification to demonstrate to consumers, investors, and regulators that their net-zero targets are reducing emissions at the pace and scale required to keep global warming to 1.5°C by 2050 at the latest.

Citation

Our progress is already quantifiable. By end-2023, we will have 1 million square meters of solar panels at 150 of our sites across 22 countries, representing 7% of our global electricity needs and8% improvement in our energy efficiency by 2021 within 2 years. On the products side, our Sustainable Materials division is already developing breakthrough new materials made of biomass and recyclates, with an objective to reach 30% of recycled plastics in our vehicle interiors by 2025. FORVIA teams are highly mobilized to not only reduce the CO2 footprint of our activities, but also the footprint of the vehicles we equip, in their full lifecycle.
